Muriel Spark 100: A Response to ‘The Mandelbaum Gate’ on Sunday 4th November 2018

As part of the programme for the Muriel Spark centenary, author Tracey S Rosenberg has written a fictional response to Spark's award-winning novel ‘The Mandelbaum Gate’. Tracey will read her short story ‘The Western Wall’, a tale in which three modern young women with a range of political and religious outlooks wrestle with their own personal identities and narratives. Following the reading, there will be time for questions and general discussion before a break, where SCoJeC will serve a delicious kosher buffet.

The second part of the event will be an informal writing workshop, in which Tracey will use short exercises to help participants to explore their own questions of identity. Everyone will be encouraged (but not required!) to share these stories with the group.

The event is free and all are welcome - Jewish and non-Jewish. This will be a friendly open event, suitable for adults and families. As supporters of Year of Young People 2018, SCoJeC warmly welcomes all young people to contribute.

FREE: donations welcome
